The highlight of the The Fremont Solstice Fair was a naked bike ride by Solstice Cyclists  

Watch a terrible bicycle accident by a nude rider at the Finish Line.  People were quick to respond, and encouraging.  Fortunately, the painted nudist was wearing a helmet.  It protected her head for sure.  The wings didn’t do much.  

Would you paint your junk and parade downtown?  This event made me want to live at a nudist colony.  There were several organizations trying to lure me to their campground.  It’s on my to-do list.  I will be vandwelling in my Volkswagen van, forget pitching a tent there.

One of my favorite activities do to for myself is taking a trip to an isolation chamber, or flotation tank in PDX.  The two spas Survival Bros have checked out are Float On, and Common Ground.  Both are open to the public, just call ahead before you try this form of alternative medicine.  There’s many benefits to floating, but in general it’s excellent for meditation, and relaxation.  Specifically, I use this type of therapy for an improvement in circulation, and to enhance creativity.

So how does it work?  Well, the video interview featuring Joe Rogan is a good place to start your journey.  But since I have experience, here’s how it went when I stopped by Common Ground at the Everett House Healing Center and Spa.  They are located at 5010 NE 33rd Ave, Portland, OR 97211. First, I reserved a floating session by phone (503-238-1065), which cost $65 for 90 minutes.  If you call them, and ask for a promotion, you may be able to get a better rate.  There’s two tanks here.  Common Ground is a wellness co-operative, so consider becoming a member for more savings.  It’s a wonderful environment, bursting with plant life outside, and welcoming people all around.  The reception area is cozy.  Shop, explore other services, such as massage, or you can help yourself to a beverage like hot tea.  Check in for your float, then grab an over-sized towel and hit the showers and sauna.  Beware, locker room may be coed at times, so you may see some boobies.

After loosening up in the sauna, and breaking a sweat, I rinsed off again, and took off my bath towel.  I slipped into the dark tank, and got settled in.  Using earplugs is recommended, so one more bodily sense is cut off from The World.  That’s the idea.  You use an isolation chamber to go inside yourself, work through issues, and make discoveries.  A floating air pillow supports your head and neck.  Then you simply lay there in darkness, mostly submerged in salty water.  The Epsom solution is ideally the same temperature as your skin, at 93.5-95 degrees.  So as you relax, you begin to lose a sense of where your body ends, and where the The Universe begins.  It’s like being thrown back into the womb.  Finally, you’re alone with yourself again, and can process life better.

Follow the links provided to find out more benefits of flotation tanks.  You’ll begin to discover how it changes your brain.  If you try out an isolation tank, you may feel your mind bending.  According to Common Ground in Portland, OR this “stimulates left/right brain synchronization; shifts brain waves from Beta to lower frequency Alpha, Theta and even Delta; creates mental clarity, alertness; increases creativity, problem solving; heightens visualization; deepens meditation; expands awareness, intensifies acuteness of all the senses, accelerates learning.”  Sign yourself up.  If you try this, you won’t be disappointed.  It is not a waste of time.  It’s something new to most, and good for you on many levels.  Leave a comment if you have additional questions, and I will do my best to answer them.  I will explore this topic further, and blog more about floating soon.  Cheers.

I needed to fly away.  I packed up my huge 110 Liter Kelty backpack, and boarded a plane for Denver, CO.  Listening to Dre, Snoop, Hendrix, and Wiz set the mood on the ride.  My brother lives in brick apartment downtown, and was generous enough to let me stay one week there.  He showed be around, mentioned cool spots to frequent, but mostly I just got high a mile above the sea level I swam from.

Staying in the historic Capital Hill district, there were Marijuana Dispensaries within walking distance.  I anticipated the treats I’d savor, and the bud I’d put in the air.  The AMCH hooked me up with all sorts of medicated goodies, as seen in the pictures below.  Of course, I didn’t get the best deal as a Oregon resident, compared to people with medical cards.  I will say, however, it’s good to know friends in high places for the best stuff.  I showed my OR ID, and purchased a bag load of THC infused gummy and taffy candies, cookies, Ear Wax, Pixie Sticks, strains of Indica and Sativa, and a very special Chocolate Rice Crispy Treat.  The green, gooey bar was loaded with 500 milligrams of activated THC.  The label warned of couch lock, and I found out that’s a real thing.  After eating all of it, it took too much energy to move.  I watched Judge Judy for 3 days straight.  Sure, Denver is a fun city, but I didn’t visit there to act trendy, and fit in.  So I smoked every 15 minutes, and got fatter.  It sounded better than trying to pick up chicks.  I had a hard enough time trying to pick out a can of coffee that wasn’t decaffeinated.  And with the thin air up there, picking up anything is difficult, especially females.  I’d need an oxygen mask for sex.

I felt free being able to carry a fat bag of smoke, and edibles down the street without worry.  Now, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and D.C. have ended marijuana prohibition.  Measure 91 in OR has been years in the making.  With a tax on it, everyone wins.  Except the people that have never tried pot, and refuse to.  Ignorance is a dying breed.  If you haven’t puffed weed, do all stoners a favor, and don’t comment on something you don’t know anything about.  Weed is real medicine.  So ditch the pills, and consider Nature’s cure for just about everything – MARIJUANA!

My fellow Oregonians rejoice the news that Measure 91 has passed, and weed in legal in our State!

Free at last in Colorado!

Marijuana is legal in WA State now!  So Survival Bros went to Longview, Washington to smoke some weed.  Blaze up a fatty joint with me, and celebrate Liberty in America NOW.  This is an exercise is personal freedom.  Come on Oregon!  Get with the program, and smoke some ganja.  SUBSCRIBE TO SURVIVAL BROS ON YOUTUBE IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT!

This HD video was shot at The Freedom Market.  They have two locations.  One in Kelso, WA, and the other in downtown Longview.  http://www.FreedomMarket420.com

As an Oregon Resident, I went to this establishment, and scored bud without having to show identification.  I have grey hair.  However, you can’t smoke on location, which was a bummer.  So where is an Oregon Resident suppose to go to puff chronic?  I don’t know.  I don’t smoke in my vehicle.  You won’t catch me riding dirty.  And I wasn’t about to break the law, and take it back to OR.  So I did the natural thing, and got high outdoors.  It was the best.  Nothing beats being able to carry my medicine down the street in broad daylight.  So many recreational marijuana shops to visit, so much time.

What does entertainer Bill Hicks have to do with surviving? Everything. Survival and comedy is about observation and adaptation. You have to think for yourself, and question authority. Bill embodied awareness, and made light of the darkness. In short, Hicks made the world a better place. Learn from him. We must survive AND thrive in the nightmare of 1984. Survival Bros will use Art and comedy to do both. Peace and love. – Cameron McKirdy

Life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

Watching television is like taking black spray paint to your third eye.
 
We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.
 
We are the facilitators of our own creative evolution.
 
Listen, the next revolution is gonna be a revolution of ideas.– Bill Hicks
